Announcing: A Very Big Long Island Wind Turbine

New, 2 comments

RIVERHEAD?Why, friends, did we get a press release about the installation of Long Island's largest wind turbine? We have no idea, but we'll be damned if we just let this momentous occasion just slip through the cracks. Read on: "The Northwind 100kW wind turbine was installed by Eastern Energy Systems for Half Hollow Nursery, Inc, a 1,200-acre wholesale nursery in Riverhead, NY. The wind turbine is expected to produce an estimated 157,555 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity per year for an approximate annual energy savings of $30,000 per year for the wholesale nursery company, which will use wind power as its primary source of energy." 157,555 kilowatt-hours! We're canceling the rest of CurbedWire so you can let that marinate. [CurbedWire Inbox]
